“The trouble with learning from experience is that you never graduate”

"The trouble with learning from experience is that you never graduate” is a saying that has been printed on many images. American newspaper columnist Doug Larson (1926-2017) wrote this in his column in the Green Bay (WI) Press-Gazette on February 2, 1984.


Wikipedia: Doug Larson
Doug Larson (February 10, 1926 to April 1, 2017) was a columnist and editor for the Door County Advocate (1953–1964) and wrote a daily column, “Doug’s Dugout,” for the Green Bay Press-Gazette (1964–1988), both Wisconsin-based newspapers. The column was originally syndicated through United Media under the title “Senator Soaper Says”; Larson took over authorship in 1980. Previously, it had been written by Bill Vaughn of the Kansas City Star. Larson was born in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.
